“Please show your ID to the cashier now.”

So…how old do you have to be before you can buy lemons?

That’s right, the U-Scan carded me.  For buying lemons.  Definitely one of the funnier grocery store experiences I’ve had in a while.

    Yeah, the logic astounds me. You *might* be making hard lemonade, y’know

    re hard lemonade: There was a local flap not too long ago in which a U of M professor — of classical archaeology — unwittingly bought his 8-year-old (or whatever) a Mike’s Hard Lemonade at a baseball game. The “authorities” took his kid away.

    A key paragraph in the story: “Ratte is a tenured professor of classical archaeology at the University of Michigan, which means that, on a given day, he’s more likely to be excavating ancient burial sites in Turkey than watching “Dancing with the Stars” — or even the History Channel, for that matter.”

    It would always display on my screen as “LOL BUTTER”
